National Aviation Services (NAS), the fastest growing aviation services provider in the emerging markets, launched its new, exclusive Pearl Lounge at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. The 144 square meter departure lounge is the first of its kind in Afghanistan, catering to local and international travelers looking to unwind before a flight.

Located in the departures hall, after immigration, the Pearl Lounge provides passengers with a comfortable space to relax, read a newspaper, watch TV, surf the internet or just catch up on last minute work with the high-speed Wi-fi connection. A hot and cold food selection as well as beverages complement the leisure offering at the lounge. Barista style hot drinks served as you relax will add to relaxing ambience. A flight information screen and vigilant staff ensures that passengers are not delayed for their flights.
